Treatments for Hand Wrinkles
One of the most telling indicators of a woman’s age is not the lines on her face but the condition of her hands. Are your hands still as smooth, supple and taut as they once were or do they look old and wrinkled?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your hands, you can actually do something about it. Creams, chemical peels and even cosmetic surgery are some of the treatment options now available for hand wrinkles.
Certain anti-aging hand creams can be effective at removing hand wrinkles. Those that contain powerful antioxidants and collagen-producing formulas have been shown to work because they are known to make all skin, not just the skin on your hands, firmer and fuller.
Frequent application of this type of hand cream to the back of your hands will soften and moisturize them, improving the overall appearance of your hands, and reducing wrinkles at the same time.

There are two kinds of chemical peels available for treating hand wrinkles – those that you can do at home and those that must be performed by a dermatologist. The at-home chemical peel discussed in this article is applied over the course of several days and will cause your hands to become flaky and dry.
Don’t worry though because that’s what’s supposed to happen. As those layers of dry, dead skin are peeled off, new healthy skin on your hands is revealed. Unlike the old, dry skin, your new skin will have far less wrinkles.
The dermatologist’s chemical peel also involves a series of applications but they are applied by a dermatologist and use much stronger chemicals than the at-home peel. There is also a significantly longer recovery time but the results may also be better.
If creams or chemical peels do not produce the results you are looking for, then a surgical procedure may be the thing for you. During one of the most common procedures, your dermatologist will use a type of sand blasting device to remove dead layers of skin and reveal youthful hands with less wrinkles.
Other benefits include an improvement in hand discoloration and tone. This option will likely produce the best results but is the most expensive of the available options.
There are other options, including one that’s similar to a facelift in that it pulls the skin on your hands taut again. Click here to learn more about cosmetic surgery for hand wrinkles.
